Each year, over 5000 children are excluded from mainstream education in the UK, and just under 60 of them study at Muntham House School: a specialist boarding school for boys with emotional and behavioural difficulties.

Many of Muntham House's pupils have been excluded because of violent and disruptive behaviour. But the dedicated teachers, led by charismatic headmaster Richard Boyle, are committed to finding out what it is in each boy that will inspire them to want to turn their lives around.

This intimate First Cut documentary by filmmaker Marc Williamson follows three of the school's most challenging pupils.

The final sequence, in which a friendless little lad embarked on a long walk away from the sports field and suddenly decided to rejoin his peers captured, literally and poetically, a moment of important reversal
